Green Infrastructure Network Delivery Program
Council is delivering a network of green infrastructure projects to enhance the environmental, social and economic benefits of our growing region.
Council’s Green Infrastructure Network Delivery Program improves road safety for motorists and wildlife by constructing and installing wildlife movement infrastructure including fauna rope bridges, fauna underpasses, roadside (animal exclusion) fencing, animal refuge poles, nest boxes, wildlife road pavement stencils, monitoring equipment, and undertaking compensatory tree planting when road safety upgrades require tree removal.
Street tree planting
Street trees support healthy urban communities by providing cooler and greener pathways, improved air quality, habitat for birds and other wildlife, enhanced neighbourhood character, cleaner stormwater runoff and better street appeal.
Since 2017, Council’s Green Infrastructure Network Delivery Program has planted over 35km of shade trees around local schools to encourage walking and active transport. Walk-to-school shade tree projects have been delivered in Caboolture, Deception Bay, Kallangur, Kippa-Ring, Margate, Murrumba Downs, with others planned for future delivery.
